24 February 2023 will be the first anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. To mark this sad and terrible occasion, we are joining forces with numerous partner organisations in an art intervention that will temporarily transform the historic Cafe Moskau into Cafe Kyiv.
On 27 February 2023 we invite you to the event Cafe Kyiv – We Choose Freedom. Throughout the day, Cafe Kyiv will host workshops, discussions, talks, salons and culture. Freedom, Europe, security and recovery will be on the agenda. Through art, history, films, cuisine and the creative scene, we want to rediscover Ukraine and listen to its diverse voices.
Due to limited space, registration is required.
Cafe Moskau is an event location in German-American private ownership. Apart from its history, the venue has no connection to Russia. Due to monument protection laws, the renaming is only permitted for a short period of time. We find it important to take a stand, especially on the anniversary of the Russian attack on Ukraine. We want to emphasise that Kyiv is closer to us than Moscow – geographically and politically. This makes Cafe Kyiv a fitting starting point for the demonstration against the Russian war of aggression on 24 February 2023, amplifying the voices of those in support of Ukraine. On 27 February 2023, our event “Cafe Kyiv – We Choose Freedom” will take place.
